ANN ARBOR, Mich. – For its 40th season, the Wild Swan Theater in Ann Arbor is looking for local talent and actors. 

Auditions will be held on Sept. 4 and Sept. 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wild Swan Theater on Jackson Road. 

Actors will be considered for three productions: a musical version of “A Christmas Carol” (early December); a performance based on the life of Margaret Hamilton, “Coding to the Moon: Margaret Hamilton and the Apollo Missions” (early March, 2020 with additional touring dates); and a production of “Treasure Island” (early May 2020).

According to the auditions announcement, the Wild Swan Theater rehearses and performs during the day so daytime availability is necessary. Rehearsals are held three times a week starting six weeks prior to each show.
